If the cold weather approaching is already bumming you out, maybe a little summer 2021 planning can lift your spirits. The Boots and Hearts Music Festival
just announced its dates and lineup for their 10th anniversary weekend and it's looking mighty fine, if you ask us.The fest is celebrating "10 years of Bootslife" from August 5th to 8th, 2021 with Dan + Shay
headlining Friday evening and Sam Hunt
heading up the coveted Saturday spot. Fans can also see Jon Pardi
Thursday and Eric Church
Sunday with more names like Chris Lane
, Brothers Osborne
and Meghan Patrick
also performing, among others. The whole weekend of country music, camping shenanigans and fun will go down at Burl’s Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ontario.
Canada's largest country and camping festival is fresh off winning the Canadian Country Music Association's Festival of the Year for the fifth time, but planning for a 2021 live music festival is a bit of a different task, given the current uncertainty around COVID-19. While almost all live events were cancelled the previous festival season and it's not yet clear when live music and festivals will be safe again, Festival VP Todd Jenereaux is hopeful."So many people have asked us what we think 2021 will bring or have specific projections for what the future holds. We do not. What we do have is an undeniable faith in live music, outdoor events, country music, and this wonderful country we call home," he said in a press release.
"We know that Country Music has built a genuine community of fans who have been patient while they remain anxious to get back to the experiences they love and miss so much," Jenereaux continued. "We too are anxious to move forward and celebrate our 10th anniversary next year. We will stay informed on all developments, modify our plans, and take all possible steps toward our goal to host the Festival again for our fans."He also assured fans tickets
will be refunded if the event needs to be cancelled for health concerns.So add this one to our "Summer Dreaming" list and wear your mask like Boots and Hearts depends on it.[video_embed id='2041630']RELATED: Dan + Shay reveal which iconic band they want to collaborate with next [/video_embed]
